William Irwin Thompson – The Slaying of the Great Mother and the Construction of the Modern World (The Time Falling Bodies Take to Light: Lectures on mythology, sexuality and the evolution of culture, #12) – a Lindisfarne talk.
An analysis of the Babylonian creation myth, the Enuma Elish, and a comparison with the mythological patterns underlying Aeschylus’ Oresteia. Author William Irwin Thompson is founder of the Lindisfarne Association.
The Lindisfarne Tapes are selected recordings of presentations and conversations at the Lindisfarne Fellows’ meetings. In March of 2013 William Thompson granted permission to the Schumacher Center for a New Economics to transfer the talks from the old reel-to-reel tapes to digital format so that they could be posted online and shared freely. Reposting should include acknowledgment of williamirwinthompson.org.
